§ Mr. David Atkinson
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what representation has been received from the Maltese Government regarding contacts between Her Majesty's Government and the Maltese nationalist party.
§ Mr. Whitney
On 10 January 1983 the Maltese Government circulated a note to all foreign missions in Valletta about contacts with members of the nationalist party. The British High Commission, in common with many other missions, informed the Maltese authorities that their activities would continue to be guided by the Vienna convention on diplomatic relations. The matter was satisfactorily resolved at the time.
